New Chapters Being Established!

Phi Gamma Delta Fraternity

This fall, Phi Gamma Delta, also known as Fiji, will be colonizing at West Chester University! This is a unique opportunity to build something from the ground up, to develop your leadership abilities, and to leave a distinctive legacy at West Chester University. We are recruiting men who are academically focused, have leadership capabilities, value service to others, and arerespected gentlemen to be the newest addition to a brotherhood that has existed since 1848. We look forward to joining the West Chester community and being a positive addition to it. Finally, we are looking for men of all classes to establish this colony.

This is a chance to create the experience YOU would like. We are recruiting men who are ready to create a fraternity based on a fresh start. It is an opportunityto instantly lead an influential organization,to build something from the ground up,to join an extended network of successful alumni, and to become a part of a 166-year old international organization.

In order to ease concerns about finances, we are offering an academic scholarship. Any man that joins the Fraternity and receives a 3.2 GPA during his pledging semester will receive a $250 unrestricted scholarship. We will also be giving out $1,000 with our White Star Scholarship to any non-Greek male; there is no commitment to join the Fraternity to receive the scholarship. The application will be available at the beginning of the fall semester. Finally, as a new organization, the first members will have the opportunity to determine the budget and membership dues.

Phi Gamma Delta looks forward to working with the West Chester community. Please direct any questions to Jackson Wood or Eric Lied, the Phi Gamma Delta Fraternity Staff members who will be coordinating the new chapter development this semester.

She will be helping to lead the marketing and recruitment efforts throughout this semester and will work closely with ASA's new members to educate them about Alpha Sigma Alpha, what it means to be a Panhellenic womanand also train the chapter officers following their installation.

  • ASA will participate in the Open House round of Formal Recruitment. We will then allow the other Panhellenic groups to complete the Formal Recruitment process. Our colonization recruitment process will kick off following Formal Recruitment.
  • ASA will be seeking women of all academic years (freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors) to become re-founding members of the Delta Gamma chapter of Alpha Sigma Alpha.
  • As you meet Potential New Members during Formal Recruitment, we hope you will share more information regarding ASA. If there are women that do not find their fit during the Formal Recruitment process, we hope they will consider participating in ASA’s recruitment process.
